Former Antrim goakeeper Kerr transfers to Armagh club Ballymacnab

By Shaun Casey

Former Antrim and St Gall’s net minder Chris Kerr will play his football with Armagh club Ballymacnab for the upcoming season.

The Nab, under new manager Barry Dillon, will hope to bounce back to the top tier this season after suffering relegation to Division 1B.

The Round Towers qualified for back-to-back county finals in 2018 and 2019 but Crossmaglen denied historic victories on both occasions.

Kerr, now residing in Armagh where he runs his own sports massage business, has spent some time coaching in the Orchard County with Grange and Wolfe Tones.

The ex-Antrim keeper played his last championship game for the Saffrons in a 2018 defeat to Down, under former Ballymacnab boss Lenny Harbinson.

Kerr has spent some time on the medical table, suffering the dreaded ACL injury twice in the last few years.

He made his long-awaited return for St Gall’s last summer, when their run was ended by eventual championship winners Creggan.
